6 Overrated Destinations To Avoid for Your Next Vacation

Traveling can be a wonderful experience. Getting to see historical places, ticking off bucket list spots, and marveling at the most notable wonders on Earth are all reasons people decide to travel. But what about all those popular sites people gush over?

While there are many places to visit worldwide, there are also many overrated stops. This list is for all those times you visited a site everyone said was amazing, just to be overwhelmingly disappointed.

As several users have mentioned, “The crowds, the protective glass, and so on make it impossible to look at the painting and appreciate Leonardo’s genius. The quality of the tourist experience does not reflect the site’s quality.

1. The Louvre

“This is probably one of the most overrated attractions in the UK. It costs £14.90 to get inside this big park to see it, not to mention the 2-hour long drive from London. And if it’s a rainy day, as it is most of the time in the UK, you will regret your money and time.”

2. Stonehenge

“I’ve known people from Denmark who laugh themselves sick at the busload after busload of tourists who jump all over each other to take pictures of the statue of the Little Mermaid. The statue is ‘little,’ apart from which it has zero artistic or historical value. Yet they travel halfway around the world to see it.”

3. The Little Mermaid-Copenhagen

“Every year, every day, thousands of tourists flock to the city of Verona, in the northern part of Italy, to reach a balcony built in the 17th century out of bits of a Medieval sarcophagus. There is no such thing as a house of Juliet. Shakespeare made up the story, the two families, and everything he wrote in his famous romantic drama.”

4. Balcony of Romeo and Juliet

. “As you walk down an alley, it opens into a square with busloads of people gathering around a corner, watching a small statue of a kid relieving himself in a fountain. There was nothing special about this statue; it doesn’t evoke any artistic emotion.”

5. Manneken Pis

“I’m going to apologize in advance. Don’t get me wrong, I love Jerusalem, but the Western Wall is quite frankly just a wall and as such a highly overrated sight.”

6. The Wailing Wall
